Nature After the Rain, part 1

Once the rain stopped Saturday morning, I jumped into my little truck and drove first to the El Dorado Nature Center, located on the edge of Long Beach at the 605 freeway. While the entry is free, parking costs $7 on the weekend, but it’s oh so worth it. Point to note: I watched several people ride their bikes to the entrance, though, from a beautiful off-street bike trail. So perhaps they park somewhere free and ride in, but I think it’s also rather nice supporting maintenance of this gorgeous in-the-city nature wonderland. ~SueBee (photos by SueBee)

    It is nice to think of people rejoicing at some rain.

      I believe it will be short-lived. The weather report I heard while driving home said to be prepared for return of summer weather. Ugh

        Bad luck. I may have mentioned that we have plenty of rain to spare.

    Looks like a really nice nature park. In fact, it looks a lot like the Pasadena Arroyo park (except yours has more water).

      I was in shock my first time here. It sits next to the 605 freeway, but honestly, you’d never know it!

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
